Over the past couple months, we have been deep in strategy and planning discussions with our literacy partners at The Learning Foundation. We have an ambitious and exciting plan for developing literacy in our students and training our teachers on strategies for teaching children how to read.
Some highlights include:
- developing a teachers-training-teachers program, which we piloted with two of our teachers in October
- delivering multiple early literacy and phonics training workshops and follow-up visits with our teachers in the South
- beginning to implement remedial reading clubs in our schools
